Stuart is as happy to be poking about the latest practical people carrier as wringing out a supercar on track. His eclectic motoring tastes manifest themselves in a weakness for 1990s touring cars, rear wheel drive Fords and old-school custom cars. He puts Autocar’s test car fleet through its paces on the tortuous cross-London commute to the office in South West London. If you want to know how a car performs in rush hour, he’s the person to ask. Follow Stuart on Google+
